Richard Throw and Joseph Thompson are currently looking to partner with local companies in the NWI area to become advertising sponsors for their amatuer boxing production that will host a slew of Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana's up and coming boxing talent, along with some great musicians, and two very special guests.

"We have confirmed the availability of Micky Ward and funny-man Adam Ferrara," Thompson said. "We just have to pull some community support to book them. Talent like that costs money. Not a ton, but just enough to make it a challenge to really make us go all in; head first, like a eagle diving for a fish."

Richard Throw, 24, from Crown Point quotes, "both of us want to use the proceeds to make our dreams come true, and open our own planning and promoting firm. But Joseph was the one with the vision and Purpose. I like throwing parties together, making people's night feel special; like its Once In A Lifetime."

Joseph Thompson, 25 of Chicago, Il, quotes, "I want to give these kids an awesome opportunity, to feel like all that dedication and hard work paid off some how. I mean, how often does a 15 something year old from Highland or Calumet City get to meet a boxing legend AND a tv personality, all just for going toe to toe with someone. Some might argue that we're sending them the wrong message but I disagree. I think we're sending them the RIGHT message, because we're trying to show them that we notice that they're not on the streets acting a fool. We want to reward them for that."

Micky Ward, most recently famous for being portrayed by Hollywood Allum Mark Wahlberg in the movie "The Fighter", is the former WBU Light Welterweight title holder, and holds a record (after retirement) of 38 wins and 13 losses, with 28 of his victories by knockout.

Adam Ferrara is a full time Comedian, having done such works as FX's series "Rescue Me" and the movie "Paul Blart: Mall Cop". "Adam just seems like he would make an interesting and intense host emcee. His charisma is off the charts, and as far as we know, he's a fight fan."
